Primer dia de Paris

So back to Paris...

Lana and I took a train from Bilbao to Valledolid last night at 5:00 pm. Once we got to Valledolid we had to get on a different train to Paris. It was kind of backwards because we were going south of Bilbao (further away from Paris) to just go back. Anyway, we barely made it on our second train because we didn't leave early enough from the lobby so that was really scary.

But we made it to Paris at 8:30 this morning! We took a taxi to our hotel and at first our taxi driver only spoke French so I was really nervous. Later in the ride he asked us if we spoke English and Lana and I both responded at the same time with "si!". I think this whole adjusting back to English thing is going to be a little harder than I thought! Once we got to our hotel we were lucky enough to have it be ready for us so early in the morning! So we got to check in right away.

After we were all settled in we went out to see the Luxembourg Garden which is right by our hotel and then we went to the Notre Dame. Once we were up in the Notre Dame we could see all of Paris, including the Eiffel Tower. We are planning on going to see the Eiffel Tower tonight because it lights up at night. Tomorrow we will go back to see it during the day and hopefully climb all the way to the top. Other sights we plan on seeing include, Arc de Triumphe, Moulin Rouge, Versaille, the Louvre and whatever else we come across!

I miss everyone from the program already, but luckily most of them go to GV so I will see them in the fall! See everyone else in a few days! :)

Hasta Luego!
